    • Abstract:
      Picturebooks were considered the most original and relevant contribution made by children’s literature to canonical literature. This typology promotes creativity and experimentation, combining playfulness with artistic sophistication. For their part, wordless picturebooks, whose narrativity is found exclusively in the sequence of illustrations, bring forth questions as to whether they can be considered literature. Wordless picturebooks challenge traditional theoretical approaches and demand a complementary approach that encompasses all of the book’s elements. The scarce verbal component reinforces the meaning of the content and requires a more detailed reading of the illustrations. Using relevant examples, this paper aims to debate the inclusion of wordless picturebooks in the literary domain, through a reading that encompasses aesthetic criteria, with emphasis on narrativity.

    • Abstract:
      El libro-álbum, espacio de creatividad y experimentación, donde se entrecruzan lo lúdico y la sofisticación artística, fue considerado la contribución más original y relevante de la literatura infantil a favor de la literatura canónica. El libro-álbum sin texto, por su parte, sujeto a la narratividad que resulta exclusivamente de la secuencia de imágenes, plantea dudas sobre su integración en el dominio literario, desafiando los enfoques teóricos tradicionales y exigiendo un abordaje complementario de todos los elementos que componen el libro. La contención verbal intensifica los significados y obliga a una lectura profunda de las ilustraciones. A partir de ejemplos relevantes, cuestionaremos la integración de los libros-álbum sin texto al dominio literario, proponiendo una lectura con base en criterios estéticos, con énfasis en la narratividad.
